Pinnacle Helps Prepare Televisa For Athens OlympicsExpands graphics infrastructure with HD and SD CGs, servers and effects (July 12, 2004)
Pinnacle Systems, Inc. today announced that Televisa, the largest media company in the Spanish speaking world, has significantly expanded its graphics infrastructure in preparation for its coverage of the 2004 Summer Olympic Games. The complete Pinnacle package of two FXDeko II, three Deko2200 and one HD Deko500 character generator systems have been paired with three dual-channel Thunder LT clip servers, a Lightning still server and two Dual Channel DVEXCEL DVE systems, to significantly expand Televisa's graphics capability during the Olympics and later as part of its fully networked Pinnacle Vortex news production environment.
Televisa's Elias Rodriguez said, "Pinnacle's Deko is the benchmark graphics tool for the Olympic Games and Televisa would use nothing else to cover this signature global event. Behind the scenes, Pinnacle's networked workflow for graphics is integral to Televisa's production efficiency. On-air, Pinnacle Deko is responsible for the sophisticated look that Televisa's audience has come to expect. The new graphics systems are the perfect complement to the extensive Pinnacle broadcast equipment already installed at Televisa."
The newly purchased equipment will be installed at Televisa Chapultepec, the production hub for the network.
Pinnacle Systems' COO Ajay Chopra said, "In every corner of the globe, this year's Olympic audience will see the creative power of Deko character generators at work. Virtually every major broadcaster of the games is relying on Deko to create and guarantee delivery of the on-air look of this singular event."
